    PlayStationHaX Podcast #3

    Forums are a somewhat of a niche market, they are not used nor utilized in the same manner that they were ten years ago, i miss the days were forums were filled with intelligent people helping the less educated, i miss members filling forums full of tutorials and help guides, don't get me wrong, it still happens, just not to the same extent that it once did and finally i miss the days when people used to come on a forum and tell me to kill myself or express how they would like to have sexual relations with my mother, there just isn't the heart in forums that once existed, that does not mean i wish to get rid of this forum, it simply means that i must evolve a little and this is why i am introducing podcasts Podcasts are simple audio speeches or presentations that you can listen to via SoundCloud where i will be uploading them or download them from there and play them on your phones audio player, you probably wonder why i chose to do Podcast's and not videos, well that is simple, videos require you to look at them, one is tempted to even stare at the screen whilst they are listening something on the screen, listening to a Podcast does not tempt you to look at your screen and you can listen to it on your way to work or when you are out for your evening jog, you can listen to it in bed or the bath, on top of that YouTube is over done and saturated with videos involving the scene and games consoles, scene Podcasts are not something i have really seen done, apart from when the much loved and hated scener Braken did it a long time ago. I plan to do these Podcasts each week and i might even venture into scenes outside the PlayStation scene, i will try to record it on a Saturday so that it is available on Sunday, it will discuss the news and releases that happened throughout the week, so here is the first one: PlayStationHaX Podcast #1 PlayStationHaX Podcast #2 PlayStationHaX Podcast #3 Please feel free to leave suggestions or tell me how much it sucks

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Statistics

    Hello! Following my this program BwE PS4 NOR Statistics v1.00, another micro version of my PS4 NOR Validator, is designed solely to validate your NOR based on statistics only from Better Way Electronics! Why make this you ask? Entropy and statistics are a well used methodology in the malware analysis field to determine if a binary file is encrypted, and by how much. What is entropy? Entropy is a method for measuring uncertainty in a series of numbers or bytes. In technical terms, entropy measures the level of difficulty or the probability of independently predicting each number in the series. What has this got to do with PS4s? Well the PS4's NOR is almost entirely encrypted and so with a collection of known valid NOR's it is possible to determine the level of entropy that represents a valid NOR and what level of entropy would represent a corrupt NOR. When corruption occurs it will generally wipe out a large chuck of the NOR, cause the NOR to repeat itself or will fill the NOR with junk. All of this will decrease or severely increase the entropy. Seeing as the PS4 firmware is likely to add more or less complexity with each update I have made available a settings file where you can adjust the predicted statistics. Download: BwE_PS4_NOR_Statistics.rar (5.4 MB) Have fun! And yes this is made specifically for other PS4 repairers like myself. Maybe it will be useful for something else one day. Remember the fun we had with the PS3 NOR? NOTE: My program is designed for Windows 64 - If this is a problem then you're computing wrong. Release Date: 5/11/18 Version: 1.0 MD5: BDABAAB45995A3D1E7AE83541E752721 Chiptune: Dubmood - A Tribute to Kootie Loader Art: BwE (Credits to Maniac (Netflix)) This is what a valid NOR looks like: This is what an invalid NOR looks like: Sorry for the copypasta! Enjoy either way!

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Validator

    Hello! Since my BwE PS4 NOR Statistics v1.00 release followed by v1.1, this program is the full version of my PS4 NOR Validator... it is designed solely to validate the NOR flash of your PS4 console from Better Way Electronics! Download: BwE_PS4_NOR_Validator.rar (5.8 MB - Latest Version) Why would you need to do this? Well if your console has suddenly died and has what is called the 'BLOD', the NOR can be the reason why. Using my program will allow you to validate literally every single byte of the NOR (or 1782 specific areas) - allowing you to see where or if it is corrupted. The most common area of corruption that causes the BLOD is the CID. This is mostly full of perconsole data and thus cannot be repaired. BUT! My program will show you areas that are fillers and areas that are static (which are unchanging across consoles). You may get lucky! Other areas can be inter-changed between different consoles and are more suited for repair, the WiFi/BT module is a good example of this. So fundamentally, this program is for console repairers like myself. If you are indeed a repairer and run a business I can make a custom 'bulk' version for you! This is the internal revision number 84 (and the first public version, obviously), so hopefully there shouldn't be any major bugs! If you encounter any errors or weird results - or better yet if your NOR is labeled danger in any areas, but still runs fine - let me know! This program is NOT perfect, but it is much better than just using a hex editor or never truly knowing if your BLOD is caused by the NOR! This also goes above and beyond that of the psdevwiki page regarding the main flash of the PS4. When I have time, I will update it! Have fun and good luck! Fun numbers: 84 revisions 11210 lines of code 585 possible OK results 389 possible WARNING results 227 possible DANGER results 1782 offsets read 1423 if statements 289 regular expressions 2023 print F's Version History: 1.1 (28/11/18) Improved VTRM & CID Validation, Typo Fixes, Better Colours! Whoops! 1.0 (27/11/18) First Release!

    I am sure i don't need to remind anyone how much i enjoy photography, i wouldn't say that i am very good at it or that i produce great images, it is just something that i enjoy, sometimes i do take some decent photo's and some people enjoy them, my favourite type of photography is macro. I thought i would use my love of both photography and games consoles to take photo's of a PlayStation 1, the model is SCPH-5552 and it is the beginning of a bunch of photo's i will take of various PS1 and PS2 consoles for the PS1 and PS2 Dev Wiki, here is a photo sample, the rest can be viewed at the link below: SCPH-5552 - PS1 Dev Wiki

    Using the Spider Man pkg was a mistake it has confused a lot of people. This wont let you play anything you can't already play. I had the Spider Man link and was using it in setting up the GUI. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up

    It is that stupid time of the year again, where people go crazy and buy shit they normally wouldn't buy, or buy those things they have been wanting for a long time. Black Friday used to be a physical store only thing, but for a long time it has been also on the internet, no longer do you need to leave the house and get germs from all those assholes going crazy for some stupid deal, you can do it at home, whilst lying on the sofa naked, obviously with the heating on. Below i will post a bunch of links to various websites that have deals, the ones from Amazon will have affiliate links, they will not cause you any extra or cause you to have a higher price of product, they simply give me a very tiny commission of like 3 pence for each item sold, which goes a little way towards helping pay for keeping this website along with the Wiki's and Console History sites alive, if you don't want to use my links, just search for the item on Amazon.

    I had no idea this is what you were talking about doing on discord. I thought you were just cleaning the board but you removed all of the components. Are you taking macro pictures of the re-assembly process?

    This method teaches you to convert your Retail PlayStation 3 to a full DEX, allowing you to install and use official DEX firmwares. Only a select number of people have used this method before, it was never really released for the public. Because Sony doesn’t really seem to care for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 3 scene at the moment we decided to document this method in a detailed guide. This shows a scene is never really dead Full guide is documented here! https://www.consolehax.com/guides-ps3-dex/

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Statistics

    Well my program was released for those who can't wait for my 12,000 line NOR validator. It's simple as it tells you with bright colours if your NOR is abnormal. A hex editor can't do that unless you already know what to look for. Not every one does. Hence the colours! I'll update it with a COREOS check and an additional corruption validation. Either way my main validator will arrive soon. I'm able to detect and fix corruption in CID that causes BLOD. So it's getting more accurate! Also I want COFFFEEEEEE

    Happy Birthday PS3

    Twelve whole years ago today the PS3 was released in Japan, that was at least two years before members of the forum such as @DarkElementPL were born, The PS3 does not have the same amount of love from Sony as it did all those years ago, but the scene gives it the love it deserves, you can see such instances in places like PSX-Place, Reddit and of course here at PlayStationHaX. I haven't updated the website in about two years, but that doesn't mean what already is there is not a good read, as it is probably one of the best console histories you will ever read and i will update it when i have time, you can read all about the PS3's life below: PS3History

    For around ten years long time scener @Senaxx ran a popular website where he hosted all the downloads available fro the scene, the site started of as PS3SceneFiles, but as the PS3 scene slowed down and the PS Vita scene and PS4 scene became more popular, Senaxx decided to reinvent the website as PlayStationSceneFiles, where PS Vita and PS4 files were hosted. I think the website was extremely valuable and i feel sad that i did not upload to it regularly, so many things to do and not enough time makes it hard, i am also a bit annoyed, annoyed that developers didn't utilise the website for their files, it was a place that their files were guaranteed not to be taken down by some stupid DMCA. Thank You Senaxx for all the time you spent maintaining the site and uploading files, i just hope to see you active again some day and a reemergence of your website.
